I would drop them a note about it. An actual, printed letter, sent first class mail. I'd tell them I was unhappy, and why, and state that if they couldn't be bothered to do elementary copy editing and proofreading on an electronic book, I couldn't be bothered to buy anything they published, in any format, because I expected basic levels of quality for what they charged.

It might just stir the pot a bit.
